Notes from the Mets' win over Atlanta on Saturday:

- The Mets improved to 22-0 at Citi Field when they hit at least three home runs

- Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada (both 0-for-4) were the only starters to go hitless for the Mets. Davis, the No. 4 hitter, is 0-for-8

- Jason Bay got his first hit

- Martin Prado's two-run home run off R.A. Dickey in the fifth snapped the Mets pitching staff's scoreless streak at 13 innings this season and 22 innings overall, including a shutout in the team's last game of 2011

- The Braves (0-2) were 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position and are 0-for-10 in the series.
